In 1926, Lorenz Hart wrote: ‘This funny world makes fun of the things that you strive for. This Funny world can laugh at the dreams you’re alive for.” More than 90 years later, it’s still a funny world, so acclaimed singer Craig Jessup invites us to share in the glory of the greatest songwriters from the Great American Songbook – Rodgers and Hart, the Gershwins, Stephen Sondheim and more.
Jessup returns to Society Cabaret in the Hotel Rex with This Funny World, a classy collection of tunes performed at 8pm on the third Thursday of June, July and August. With musical director/accompanist Ken Muir and bassist Daniel Fabricant, Jessup will explore some of our greatest musical standards and throw in some gems from across the pond by “The Master,” Sir Nöel Coward. Jessup sold out the run of his one-man showcase Craig Jessup Sings Noël Coward at the Mark Hopkins Hotel, an evening that was described by the Contra Costa Times as “sophisticated…wonderfully bright and intelligent (not to mention very funny).”!
